Testing Antivirus & Antispyware Software

To ensure that your antivirus and antispyware software are properly installed and configured, it is paramount that you test them before using your computer. At the minimum, both software should pass the following tests:
  1. Antivirus - Eicar
  2. Antispyware - Spycar
You can use Internet Explorer 7 or Mozilla Firefox 3.01 to run the tests. Your antivirus and antispyware software should detect the threats when you download.
